SPX GSE Tech-Motive Tool Offset Nutrunners
June 24, 2002 GSET02-006 Novi, MI - The 66 Series offset in-line nutrunners offered by SPX GSE tech-motive tool fit tight assembly applications requiring torque of 20, 30, 35, 45, 75, 100 or 150 Nm. Speed is rated at 2290, 1485, 1177, 937, 424, 345, and 208 rpm, respectively. Marketed under the GSE tech-motive tool brand name, the 66 Series offset tools are made of durable alloy steel. The small diameter offset design minimizes square drive center-to-center distance among multiple tools used in fixtured applications. The offset tools are also available in handheld versions with choice of short or long trigger lever for operator preference and comfort. All GSE tech-motive tool 66 Series nutrunners have a lightweight aluminum handle, low mass motor that enables the tool to stop quickly when achieving rundown torque and small diameter rotors for improved torque control. All have a programmable multi-purpose pushbutton that can be used for Cycle Complete (for data transmission), multiple parameter set selection, and other functions. There's also a forward/reverse button for direction control. All GSE tech-motive tool intelligent series nutrunners contain an internal microprocessor - the Intelligent Tool Interface (ITI) module - inside the tool handle. The ITI module makes setup and calibration automatic upon connection of the tool to a GSE tech-motive tool CS4000 or CS5000 Controller. Data stored by the ITI module includes the tool model number, build date, serial number, minimum and maximum torque capacities, minimum and maximum speed capacities, calibration torque, calibration counts, angle counts per revolution, and last dates of calibration and repair. The ITI board also indicates whether the tool is fixtured and stores data regarding opposite rotation, left-hand tightening, auto retract, retract shutoff torque, retract speed, cycle, locked rotor, and over-temperature counts (to aid in diagnostic and preventive maintenance). Serial communication between the tool and controller is high speed and noise immune. Digital communication enables the use of long cables between the controller and the tools, as needed.
